I guess the reason why I'm posting it here is to share my excitement and to ask for some feedback. But also because I'm a little insecure of my first purchase and need some support. :D:D

After weighing out my budget and goals, I decided on the Mighty Press 11x15 Porta as my first press.

I have done a lot of research on the presses in this price range and this seems to be the best that I could find. What are your guys' thoughts? Anyone out there dislike this model?

One quick question as well....this press only outputs 1000w vs the 1400w+ that the other researched presses put out. Does this make a big difference?

My plan was to use the mighty press until I generate enough profits for an upgrade....then putting my mighty press as a backup. I figure I would need a backup anyways given that in the event that my main press craps out...I wouldnt lose my customers.

My other thoughts....tap into some other funds and get the Hix Swingman 15.

Yea I've considered the 15x15 as well, but I don't know if its my stubborness, but I don't think I need the extra 4 inches for my designs. The jump to a 15x15 is about a 200 dollar difference. It might not seem like a lot to some people, but it is to me.

A 9x12 is was way out of the question, and I can't really afford to go all out with a larger one given my current financial situation. So I have settled on middle grounds with the Mighty Press. If any of you guys know a bigger and better press for around 400-500 please let me know!!

Not to mention I want it new, since I have somewhat of a phobia of purchasing used equipment before seeing it.

Thanks for your input guys!

Thanks for the input,

Yea I've thought about the hix presto as well. But I'm not sure if I want to make a jump from 1k watts to 1500. I'm not sure if my condo can handle it.

Think i'll stick with the mighty press until I start planning for high volume. For some reason, I'm a bigger fan of stahls than I am hix.
